Nationals | Joe Ross finally gives up long ball

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:35:50 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross allowed five earned runs, eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Tuesday, May 10, against the Detroit Tigers. He served up his first home run of the season, too.

Fantasy Tip: Ross still has a sparkling 2.29 ERA despite the uneven stat line, so chalk it up as just one poor outing. He remains a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:51:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10, against the Washington Nationals. SS Andrew Romine will bat eighth against Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Iglesias, who played in four straight games prior to Tuesday. Romine carries no value in daily fantasy leagues, with one hit in his last 13 at-bats. Your best bet is to look elsewhere for a shortstop.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera out Tuesday

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:47:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10, against the Washington Nationals. 1B Victor Martinez will bat third against Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Two items are at play here. First, Cabrera turned his ankle slightly sliding into second base during the team's game on Monday. Although it looked like he was all right, manager Brad Ausmus may have wanted to give him a night off. In addition, there is no designated hitter because the interleague game is in an NL park. Victor Martinez is in a small slump himself, with a .174 mark in the last week, but he is one of the few hitters to post a .300 average or better for the season and is definitely worth playing in a fantasy lineup.

Nationals | Joe Ross brilliant Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 16:13:13 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross allowed a run on six hits in six innings Saturday, April 30, to beat the St. Louis Cardinals. He has allowed two runs in 22 2/3 innings for a 0.79 ERA on the season.

Fantasy Tip: His blister wasn't an issue today, and while he only has 14 strikeouts on the year, he's becoming a must-have.

Nationals | Joe Ross feeling good

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 16:41:09 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross (finger) said the blister on his throwing hand has mended well enough that he could have started Tuesday, April 26. "It's feeling good. I think I could throw today," he said. "They decided to skip me and give me some more rest. I don't think they want me to re-aggravate my finger or anything like that."

Fantasy Tip: It's understandable the Nationals are opting to be careful, as the 22-year-old Ross is only in his first full major league season. He's out to a very nice start, being 2-0 with a 0.54 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in two starts and one relief appearance. Perhaps most impressive is that the brother of Tyson Ross has been able to pitch seven innings or deeper in both of his assignments. Luckily it looks like he'll be fine for his next outing.

Nationals | Joe Ross to miss next start

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 09:21:01 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross (finger) will miss his next scheduled start with a blister on his right middle finger Tuesday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Ross did have a pinch-hit single in the extra-inning affair Sunday, so that's a good sign he'll be back after he misses his start on Tuesday. Ross is sporting a 0.54 ERA and 0.84 WHIP with 10 K's in 16 2/3 innings in his first three starts, so he should remain owned everywhere.

Nationals | Joe Ross' next start up in air

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 10:39:17 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross (finger) may not be able to make his next scheduled start after he left after only two innings with a blister on his right middle finger Wednesday, April 20. Ross' next turn could be skipped altogether, and the Nats could bring him back to face the St. Louis Cardinals April 30 since they have an off day Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: It's an unfortunate setback for Ross, who has allowed just one earned run while striking out 10 in his first three starts. The sleeper candidate hasn't disappointed so far, but you may want to consider benching him his next time out to make sure his blister is a non-factor.

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ross has impressed in his first two starts, and if he is sitting on waivers in your league, scoop him up immediately.

Nationals | Joe Ross dazzles Marlins

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 14:58:03 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross kept the Miami Marlins in check on Sunday, April 10, yielding five hits and fanning five over seven frames in his season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Weather pushed back Ross' first start of the season back a day, but it hardly mattered during his 97-pitch outing. The 22-year-old will be a recommended fantasy play in his next scheduled start as well - the opener of a three-game road set against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
